    Seems metal these days is dominated by "melodic" metal. So let's throw out some of the more atonal stuff, as well as some of the more groove-oriented stuff (i.e., not melodic metal "breakdowns"). Some of my faves:

    Suffocation
    Dying Fetus
    Cephalic Carnage
    Broken Hope (RIP)
    Cryptopsy (RIP, for all intents and purposes)
    Candiria (RIP, for all intents and purposes)
    Irate (RIP)
    Cipher

    NEED MORE! :scream:

    Seems to me you have a 100% different definition of "melodic" from me. A little breakdown with some dude whining over it does not "melodic" make.

    :scratch: I never said melodic metal is some dude whining over a breakdown. Usually, they whine after the breakdown. :lol:

    I'm just looking for some more atonal stuff, like Suffo and Broken Hope, as well as slam-worthy grooving like Candiria and Dying Fetus. I'm sure we can agree that none of those bands are melodic metal. ;)

    HAILS to the contributors thus far. I got some homework to do! Keep 'em comin! :metal:

    the only melodic metal i can think of is progish stuff like Pagans Mind, Vanden Plas, Dreamscape, and Circus Maximus.

    or do you mean melodeath? im confused.

    either way, i love Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Gorguts, Akercocke, Agalloch, and stuff like that.

    the most atonal band i can think of is either Behold the Arctopus or Psyopus, the latter is so atonal i cant really listen to it.

    nooooooooo (well yeah they are more technical but they are also a bit boring...)

    Besides the obvious (Deeds of Flesh, Decrepit Birth, Malevolent Creation, Immolation, Decapitated, Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Hate Eternal, Origin, Skinless, etc... I could go on) a few you'd almost certainly like, some you've probably heard of:


    Kronos (CHECK THEM OUT NAO if you like your brutal death metal super catchy/groovy)
    Defiled (very neat, very atonal!)
    Intestine Baalism (ok, it's melodic at times but listen to it and you'll see why it doesn't fucking matter)
    Genna Apo Kolo (also super groovy)
    Benighted (very groovy but a little more experimental/tech)
    Ulcerate (super Gorguts-esque tech)
    Gorgasm (RIP somewhat standard but lots of fun brutal death)
    Infected Malignity (now a sort of metalcore-ish band, but their first album The Malignity Born From Despair is straight up high quality Suffo worship :D)
    Infernal Revulsion (great brutal death/slam)
    Soreption (tech stuff, haven't listened to much but it's pretty cool)
    Inhuman Devotion (very techy brutal slam death... cool stuff)
    Woundeep (somewhat Origin-esque... very fast brutal death)
    Disconformity (SLAM! Fucking catchy)
    Terminally Your Aborted Ghost
    Swarrrm (super weird grindcore/death metal... their vocalist is fucking insane)
    Visceral Bleeding (very spastic tech-death, gets a little repetitive/boring at times though)
    Yattering (brutal tech death, somewhat experimental)
    Atheritic
    Hate Plow
    Sinners Bleed
    Hyonblud
    Internecine
    Jasad
    Karnak
    Animals Killing People
    Torsofuck
    Mithras

    so many more but I'll leave it at that... sorry I stopped typing descriptions but it was getting a little tiresome :lol:


    Also... feel free to check out my brutal death metal project Kuroi:

    Gorguts is awesome, its super atonal but really melodic at the same time.

    Ok, first off your band kicks fucking ass, and your taste does equally as much. Discovered Kronos like last week and fell in love.
